Lise Watier — Gulabi & Sundara (Light Cap Nail Lacquer) Swatch & Review

Collection: Lise Watier 2013 Summer, India Gold

I recently hauled from Lise Watier during one of their sales, and today I am reviewing two of the Light Cap Nail Lacquers I received from the 2013 India Gold collection.

I’m just going to quote myself here from a previous review of the Light Cap Nail Lacquers:

[T]heir Light Cap Nail Lacquer line, which is a rather gimmicky product. Its selling point is that there is an LED light built into the cap of the nail polish, which you can turn on and off with a little rubber nubbin of a button on the top of the cap. The light comes out on one side at the base of the cap, denoted by a sort of flare on the side of the cap.… It’s all a bit silly to me, but at least it seems to be a unique, if rather unnecessary, idea.

Lise Watier — Chic Tartan & Pink Plaid (Light Cap Nail Lacquer) Swatch & Review

However, I fail to see how anyone is doing their nails in such poorly lit situations that a bluish LED light in the cap is helpful. That said, if you are intent on doing your nails with the LED light assist, it is designed well! The light points down accurately on the nail when you are using the brush. It’s all a bit silly to me, but at least it seems to be a unique, if rather unnecessary, idea.

Haulage Pics! Lise Watier Nail Polish, Eyeshadow, Lipstick & Lipgloss

Last week, I posted about the Spring Flash Sale at Lise Watier (not affiliated) and my haul. The damage was eased by a $30 voucher I received from the company for filling out a survey…and also by the quite impressive discounts on offer.

My order arrived on Thursday and I haven’t had a chance to dive in and play with anything, but I took some quick photos of everything!

Along with my order of nail polishes, eyeshadow palettes, a lipstick and a lipgloss, they also sent a couple of samples (La Creme Sublime sample pictured above; they also sent one of Base Miracle Pore Minimizing Primer, which I also received in a previous order).

Lise Watier — Sapphire (Light Cap Nail Lacquer) Swatch & Review

This is my first time trying Lise Watier nail polish. Lise Watier is a Québec-based Canadian company that has been around for about 40 years; its cosmetic and fragrance products are sold at Hudson’s Bay and Shoppers Drug Mart, though you can also purchase online from their website.

First off, Sapphire is from their Light Cap Nail Lacquer line, which is a rather gimmicky product. Its selling point is that there is an LED light built into the cap of the nail polish, which you can turn on and off with a little rubber nubbin of a button on the top of the cap. The light comes out on one side at the base of the cap, denoted by a sort of flare on the side of the cap. The flare and the button don’t get in the way, so the Light Cap is by no means a drawback. However, I fail to see how anyone is doing their nails in such poorly lit situations that a bluish LED light in the cap is helpful. That said, if you are intent on doing your nails with the LED light assist, it is designed well! The light points down accurately on the nail when you are using the brush. It’s all a bit silly to me, but at least it seems to be a unique, if rather unnecessary, idea.

Now, Sapphire gives a very wintery sort of look. It’s a dark slate blue loaded with silver (and possibly some blue) shimmer. It doesn’t come off like a cheap frost: this is a pretty silvered look. Two coats gives reasonably good coverage, though three is probably required to be fully covered. The slight sheerness makes this a good candidate for layering. Overall, the polish itself applied nicely and I have no complaints as to the quality. It’s a good product in an attractive, hefty square bottle and I will certainly pay more attention to Lise Watier’s nail products in the future.
